Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has commenced an indefinite strike.
President of the union, Anderson Ezeibe, announced this at a press briefing in Abuja this morning.
He said members of the union have agreed to shut all the Nigerian Polytechnics and monotechnics until their demands are met.
This is coming despite the federal government’s move to avert strike action in Polytechnics.
It was reported that the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had yesterday evening, invited the union for an emergency meeting following the threat to embark on another round of strike.
But the president of the union, at the briefing, said the resolution of members of the union to shut down all Polytechnics across the country is now enforced effectively from today.
